adonijah



adonijah defined in 1939 year

adonijah - Adonijah;
adonijah - David's fourth son (2 Sam. 3). Born when his father reigned over Judah only, he claimed to be heir-apparent, being supported by Abiathar and Joab, and using similar means to those adopted by Absalom. David, then nearing his end, caused Solomon, who was born when David was king of all Israel, to be anointed and enthroned. Adonijah was pardoned, but, falling under suspicion of reviving his claim, was put to death by command of Solomon (1 Kings 1-2).
